Vibhuti and Sam met while attending the University of Texas at Austin, studying alongside each other in their genetics class, where they found an immediate connection. After graduation, the couple took a chance at a long-distance relationship.
“This was never supposed to work. We were doomed from the start. The universe threw everything it could muster in our direction to try and stop us,” says the bride.
Rika and Kartik’s love story began in West Palm Beach, Florida, where they both did their medical training and soon started dating. Having grown up in Brooklyn, Rika had always loved New York City, so it was only fitting for Kartik to propose in Times Square.
Asmita and Rishab kicked off the New Year with a marriage celebration that perfectly captured the couple’s exuberant personalities and Hindu culture. Asmita says it was their “shared love of music and dancing” that initially attracted her to Rishab, and vice versa, which they certainly expressed on their wedding day!
The night began with a lively sangeet, which Asmita says was “a very cool way to kick off the celebration, with killer dance performances by both sides of the family, mehndi artists and a selfie station.”
For their Hindu ceremony and reception celebration at The Corinthian, downtown Houston’s magnificent neoclassical event space, the couple selected a palette of bright plum and burgundy, brought to life with blooms by Darryl & Co.
